ANNUAL REPORTS: If you are responsible for writing an annual report, please have them into the church office NO LATER than NOVEMBER 12th.

Our Parish Charge Conference (annual meeting) is Monday November 18th, here at Bourne UMC, starting with a potluck supper at 5:30, meeting to start at 6:30. Please bring either a main dish or a salad for the potluck dinner. Our District Superintendent asks that we be ready to respond to two questions: 1) If your church has one goal that is practical, concrete, and tangible next year, what would it be? And 2) Does your congregation have Spiritual Disciplines to be transformed by the Spirit? (Prepare to share your concrete and practical spiritual disciplines). Please attend if at all possible.

CONTRA DANCE: Nationally celebrated caller Tony Parkes will lead our 4th Saturday Contra Dance on Nov. 23rd; famous Falmouth fiddler Amy Larkin and guitarist Max Cohen will play. No experience necessary. From 8 pm to 11 pm in Crain Hall. This is the dance to attend! Doug Oesterheld

CHRISTMAS DECORATING PARTY: On Sunday, November 24th, everyone is invited to stay and help decorate the sanctuary and Crain Hall after worship and coffee hour. Please help us prepare our church for the Advent season which begins Sunday, December 1st.
